criticism of her and the obama administration like this from a republican senator and potential 2016 presidential hopeful, rand paul. >> had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables, i would have relieved you from your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> president obama picked senator john kerry to lead the state department after ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. you'll recall rice caught a lot of flack over the benghazi attack. kerry is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. >>> we are still talking about this probably for the last time, though. an inaugural official told cnn that pop star beyonce did not sing the national anthem live on inauguration day. the official asked to not be identified and it was beyonce herself who made the decision the night before. >> now you think it's done? >> i don't think we'll hear from her at least not for a while on this subject. yesterday there was at least a mystery, did she or did she. now it appears she didn't. there you go. >>> the truth about manti te'o, the
, and to have this opportunity to join with senator warren and senator mccain in introducing president obama's nominee to be the next secretary of state. i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we have heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people in posts around the world. working toge
about bush. we found an example where senator obama in 2006 was upset about the debt. on the senate floor of the congressional record shows that he said, it took 42 presidents 200 years to run up atrial in debt. this administration did that in just five years. doesn't anybody call him on that? >> steve: not the main stream immediate y john. that's the reason so many people watch fox news channel, because it seems like we're the only people when are actually telling it like it is, because in 2006 when it was time to raise the debt limit under george w. bush who was president then, barak obama said can't do it. sorry. it would be unpatriotic. >> he said america has a debt problem. i intend to -- >> steve: here we are on the precipice of his second term. do we imagine that anything is going to be different than the first term where he ran up the tab? >> no. i think that's pretty clear and if you look at the national debt from president to president, bush was a big spender. got it up to 7 trillion. but obama at 16.4 trillion and at this inauguration people are saying, no, he's not a spe
right now and make this announcement. two very important positions as far as this obama administration is concerned. both require senate confirmation. >> what are does mary jo white do for diversity? a lot of criticism about diversity in the administration. >> she is a woman obviously and there is criticism that that he is not surrounding himself with enough women. he was talking to a bunch of guys. this will help a little bit. there will be more women down the road by white house officials and don't draw final conclusions about the gender and minority make up of this second term obama administration. the president will be aggressive in getting the excellent people from all sorts of backgrounds. i think let's see what he does. senior positions in the white house are opening up even as we speak right now and the president i'm sure will have a wight range of people being brought in. >> stick around with me for this announcement from the white house. we will take a break and we will be back on the other side. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk
representing us. thank you. >> thank you, senator. secretary clinton. >> thank you, mr. chairman. it's very good to be back and to have this opportunity to join with senator warren and senator mccain in introducing president obama's nominee to be the next secretary of state. i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on. first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee, through the times that he served with such distinction as chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability review board's recommendations, he'
's an odd turn-around, two years ago we were hearing this from senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? wil

: but the ban faces stiff opposition from conservativees, such as senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, who released this robo call in his home state of kentucky. >> president obama and his team are doing everything in their power to restrict your constitutional rights toa bear and keep arms. >> reporter: and it will be tough for feinstein to win over some democrats from conservative and rural states. what's your message to democrats who oppose this? >> look, the message to democrats is see what your silence does? there will be more of these. these aren't going to end. >> reporter: there are more than 2,000 types of hunting and sporting weapons that are not involved or affecting by ban, but, scott, the push for the ban could end up taking a backseat to measures that have more bipartisan support like a move to strengthen background checks for gun buyers. >> pelley: well, nancy, in senator feinstein's home state, the police in tontanna, california are, taking a different approach to fighting gun violence. they're arming the officers who protect schools with high-powered semiautomatic rifles a
parents still live in piedmont. republicans say the obama administration ignored requests for more security. >> the dots here were connected ahead of time. the state department saw this risk coming. >> reporter: and senator ron johnson of wisconsin accused the administration of misleading the american public after the attack. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protests and an assault sprang out of that and that was easily as certained that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they he did not know that. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. it was because of a protest or guys out for a walk one night who decide they would go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we have to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> a firey hillary clinton became tearful when talking about standing with the president as the bodies of the dead came home. >> i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the
to be his confirmation is all but assured. senator kerry did mention the use of drones. i thought this was really interesting. let's replay the sound from earlier this morning. >> president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone. we cannot allow the extraordinary good that we do to save and change lives, to be eclipsed entirely by the role that we have had to play since september 11th. a role that was thrust upon us. is that a sign that it's looking more seriously at the after effects, the notion that drones may radicalize certain populations of a country? what -- how did you interpret that? >> well, in some ways i think you have to ask the strigs that directly, but a statement like that may be as much a reflection on how our foreign policy is interpreted or analyzed as much as it is a commentary on strategy. obviously, the drone program has been an effect ti tool or tactic, but even with that kind of capacity, we also immediate to make sure that we have all measures of our foreign policy and security policy
happening again, senator. >> reporter: when clinton spoke of her four fallen colleagues, the pain, the memories were still raw. >> i stood by president obama as the marines carried the flag-draped caskets off the planes at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers. >> reporter: and clinton did not hesitate to shoulder the blame. >> i said many times, i take the responsibility. >> reporter: that did little to quiet some republicans, who wanted to know how this could have happened. >> had i been president at the time, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: the secretary fought back, aggressively defending comments made by u.n. ambassador susan rice five days after the attack. >> a very simple phone call to these individuals would have ascertained immediately, there was no protest. >> with all due respect, the fact is, we have four dead americans. was it because of a protest? or because of guys out for a walk that decided to go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: a
